    Do you lube your blades and with what?

    I used to use WD-40 but it didn't last long enough. Then tried motor oil worked better. Finally found Fluid Film at an ag trade show. This stuff is the best lubricant I have ever used. It lasts longer than anything I have ever tried including teflon spray. The lady at the trade show even used it as a hand moisturizer, said it was very safe.

    I've found that the best mix is Kerosene and Oil. The Kerosene cleans the blades will the oil keeps the saw well lubricated.
    I have been using this mix for many years.
    Just my $.02
